It’s no fun to have a heating system give out on you right at the end of the winter. But if you’ve made the choice to replace it now, that’s definitely for the best. Spring is an ideal time to make upgrades to your HVAC system, and it always pays to be proactive about replacing old heating equipment—even if you won’t need it for many months.
However, if you’re thinking of trying to “go it alone” on the replacement because you think you’ll have the time to do it, well, we’re glad to be here to stop you. A new central heating system installation must be left to trained and licensed technicians. So much can go wrong if an amateur tries the job, starting with incorrectly sizing the unit.
